No, this is not punishment metered out on itinerant rodents for severe misbehavior. It just seems to be the simple 'state of being' exhibited in every shot that I took of one of the reserves elusive Brown Hares this morning. At no stage do I have an image with a single foot touching the ground. I know that they are not great but I think you will see what I mean. This was the first one that I have seen here this year and it even obliged me by running (or was that floating!) along side the car!
